It’s So Hard…

It’s so hard to know what to do, when to do it and how.

It’s so hard to take care of yourself so that you’re “there for others” when others seem to need your care more than you do.

It’s so hard to do what you want to do when all the things that need to be done are still hanging around.

It’s so hard to reach out for your dreams when you’re not quite sure what they are.

It’s so hard to walk the walk and talk the talk, following your inner Truth, when everyone… and I mean everyone… seems intent on telling you their Truth, indicating that yours is just wrong.

It’s so hard to continue to believe in your own Truth the noises cast doubt so loudly, even if it’s still quietly speaking to you, and telling you the Truth.

It’s so hard to relax and “let go” when after you do, someone is there to remind you of all the responsibilities you’ve been neglecting.

It’s so hard to continue to say “no” when it isn’t listened to.

It’s so hard to follow your head because it’s the logical and best option when inside of you, your softie heart is tearing in two wanting something completely opposite.

It’s so hard to be the strong one when all you want to do is curl up in a ball and let someone else take care of it... and you.

It’s so hard to stop playing and start working.

It's so hard to even breathe, let alone "live" when someone you love dies.

It’s so hard to lose weight when it’s a million times easier to gain it.

It’s so hard to stop caring, even after it’s apparent that she/he/they have stopped caring.

It’s so hard to do what you need to do for you, when you know it will let someone else down.

It’s so hard to be the one to take away the safety net just because that person needs to learn the hard lesson of how it feels when you hit the bottom.

It’s so hard to see that the “bottom” that was hit, wasn’t actually the true bottom.

It’s so hard not to envy; it’s even harder when you do envy.

It’s so hard to look back and See with 20/20 vision.

It’s so hard to keep your chin up, keep smilin’ and Be Happy.

It's so hard to pick and choose between necessities, just because you can't afford them all.

It's so hard to get your hand slapped away when all you were doing was reaching out to help.

It's so hard to quit creating and go to bed at a reasonable time, especially when the kids are still "up and playing".

It's so hard ...

... and yet each and every one of us walks through the "so hards" every day and come out on the other side.

That makes us pretty darn strong.  Don'cha think?

  2. This is all true. But we learn more from the struggles and it shapes our character. I hope that you will make a list of all the positives in your life to counteract this list. Our problem as human beings is that we are so often brought down by one negative thought when all around us is the positive. I hope this hasn't come over as yet another negative!!! Love and hugs.

  3. That is a lot of "hards" for one day, one week, one summer. I'm hoping the positive spin at the end is the voice of Truth taking over and speaking loud for you! And just in case it isn't... {{{{{HUGS}}}}}... you know I'm here if you need anything.
